    1. Set between the first & second trilogies chronologically, this book features a woman as the main character. Mykella's story is pretty grim in many ways since she's merely a woman & thus sidelined even though she's born to a privileged position. She's chattel to be married off for political advantage & her attempts to make a difference through reason are conspicuously ignored. How she manages to deal with it is the story & a good one.The daily elements of her day got old. I like s [...]


    2. A good quick read. I believe this is going to be a trilogy, the third one of the Corean Chronicles, but it takes place between the other two chronologically. It was a good story, with an interesting heroine & came to a good end - no hanging, which I appreciate. There are certainly unanswered questions & plenty of room to continue the story, but this one is complete in itself.Once again, Modesitt looks at how power works within a society. In this case, our heroine is a woman in a male dom [...]


    3. another very enjoyable first book in a duology from the author; this one combines the usual magically talented heroine (here) against the odds with sf-nal like elements (multiverse, beings from other planets etc); sometimes the mixture doesn't work that smoothly and the book is fairly short with the bulk of the story reserved for the sequel, however the main character is one of the more interesting Modesitt leads (generally speaking the more recent the books the better the Modesitt main leads ar [...]


    4. This was one of the most boring reads ever I must confess. Don't get me wrong: this book has its merits: It's nicely written and the characters and setting are intriguing. The story itself however drags endlessly, not only because there's too much telling instead of showing, but also too much showing of things that don't matter. Almost every chapter began with telling that Mykella got up, got dressed, washed up and went to breakfast. I don't need to read something like that more than twice at th [...]


    5. This is the seventh and penultimate book in The Corean Chronicles, and the first from the perspective of Mykella, the eponymous lord-protector's daughter. I found Mykella likable, but the plot less absorbing than most of the Modesitt that I've read. (view spoiler)[This may be because a substantial part concerns matchmaking. Or it may be because the fantasy elements that surprise Mykella are familiar to me from the previous six books. Or it may be because the Lord Protector himself pays so little [...]


    6. A surprisingly good continuation of the Corean Chronicles and sequel to the Mykel/Dainyl trilogy, despite the 300-year fast-forward. Mykella grabs the reader's attention and sympathy from the start, and the book becomes a compulsive page-turner.



    7. I almost stopped reading this book, but I made myself continue. I didn't regret it because the ending was enjoyable, but the rest of it so-so.The key issue with this book is how extremely mundane and repetitive it gets throughout. At least half the book could have been omitted. The existence of this book is necessary to set the tone and world for the next book, and to give it a fancy smacny title like "The Lady Protector" and in this it has done well through its ending.In all honesty, you can ju [...]


    8. The Lord-Protector's Daughter by L.E. Modesitt, jrThis book is set before the first three books in the Corean Chronicles and after the next three. Court intrigue and succession are the major themes in this volume. Mykel of the last few books is now a historic figure. The land that he undertook to protect has flourished but seems to be in a decline. The current Lord Protector does not seem to measure up to the Talent that Mykel displayed. Mykella, a female namesake, is the protagonist in this boo [...]


    9. According to the publisher’s blurb, The Lord-Protector’s Daughter is a “standalone fantasy.” Um no. It most certainly is not. It’s book seven in L.E. Modesitt Jr’s COREAN CHRONICLES and while it’s true that it begins a new story that takes place a couple hundred years after the events of book six, it is the first part of a story that will be at least a duology set in Corus. So, you’re not going to get the full story about Mykella, its protagonist, unless you read its sequel, Lady [...]


    10. I am always worried about not stopping with the first book in the series if it was good because I don't want to be disappointed later, but no book in this series disappointed me, and I feel best for having read them all. The story comes full circle and answers any questions and loose ends by the end of the series. One of my favorite series ever. I loved the main character and seeing how he would outsmart his troubles. I loved a lot if the descriptions about the world, and the magic is genius and [...]


    11. Apparently I've read this before, but completely forgot everything about it and nothing seemed familiar about the book. However, I went to write a review here and discovered I'd already written one! Here is my newer review:This is a newer book in the Corean Chronicles. It takes place several hundred years after Soarer's Choice. I've read the previous 6 books in the Chronicles and loved them, though now I realized I've forgotten quite a bit of them and want to reread them. This book was just okay [...]


    12. I made it almost halfway through this before I finally gave up. This was a random grab off of a library shelf, and while some of the story premise was genuinely interesting, there was too much of the mundane going on.Okay, I understand that Mykella sleeps and is tired. I understand she wears the same black clothes every day. I don't care what her underwear is made of. Her food is always cold. I get it. Doesn't mean I care to keep reading about it.What I was most fed up with here, aside from the [...]


    13. The beginning looked very promising. However I was 85 or so pages in and I was finding it difficult to keep reading. It wasn't because it was written poorly, but rather the storyline was going too much into the day to day personal activities of the main characters as opposed to advancing the storyline that had me intrigued in the beginning. After awhile I just put it down and moved on to my next read.


    14. When I first began reading, I didn't really enjoy the way it was written. I thought some of the dialogue was stiff and so were the characters. As I continued to read, however, I gradually became sucked into the story and none of that seemed to matter as much. The plot is intriguing and the ancient magic is quite fun, and as soon as I can, I'm going to go back and read the books that I've missed, as this is my entryway into the series. A very cool read.


    15. Pretty good. Not one of his stronger works, but Modesitt does a decent job of translating his consistently male character into a female character in the already-plotted venue.Most frustrating element: Mykella spends most of her time seeing things go entirely pear-shaped, but doing absolutely nothing about it.


    16. I really do enjoy this world, and most of Mr. Modesitt's work, but this was a pretty weak entry. My brother would call it a money grab.It referenced some of the earlier novels, but not to the point that you need to be brushed up on them to enjoy this one. If you love the Corean Chronicles and want to take a couple of hours to revisit the world, this is a nice breezy read


    17. A good book within an interesting world a Modesitt type of character: underdog (also when it is a princess) having a coming-of-age and power challenge (magic is always and added plus). More of a build-up type of book for the next book, namely she finds her power and struggles with her place in life.


    18. A new entry point into the Corean Chronicles. It was a decent read but the book really just sets the stage/explains the backstory/Talent of the world, with a thin plot wrapped around it. I expect that there will be more books following this one, and those will focus more on plot and character development.


    19. A bit better than 3 stars, but doesn't make 4. A somewhat weaker entry than most of the Corean books.Re-read, 8/14. Again, not sure what I was thinking - down to 2 stars, just OK. Probably the worst book Modesitt's written.


    20. Very enjoyable book. Following Modesitt's usual practice of jumping around in chronology and showing how history becomes myth. Nice to see a fantasy with a female protagonist that avoids the tired romantic tropes that are so common in the genre.


    21. A quick, entertaining read. That's about it. I did not like two things: 1. Everything happened in the last 25 pages of the book. 2. There is a big spoiler on the back of the book that doesn't even occur until said 25 pages.Probably wouldn't recommend it unless you are bored. :)


    22. It was a solid read, though I did find myself being biased by knowledge I had of the world from the other books that the lead character was slowly stumbling across or seemed to be actively avoiding.


    23. A good book, a bit out of the norm for the Corean Chronicles. I picked it up with the intent to read it, then put it down. Once I picked up the sequel, Lady-Protector, I knew I had to read this one. More like 3.5 stars, just because it seemed slower to get into than I would have liked.


    24. I normally love L.E. Modesitt Jr's books. This not as much. He took forever for the story to build up and then completely ended it without much action.



    25. L.E. Modesitt Jr. is my favourite author, and this book was a huge disappointment. Nothing happens. It's boring.


    26. The main character learns how to use her powers way too quickly with no instruction, too repetitious. Although, it sounds like the next book in the series might be better.


    27. This was fairly satisfying, with the same basic plot and characters as others by the author. The only difference was that it was a woman protagonist.
